Agulha Transeptal BRK

Designed to Prevent Excessive Needle Advancement During EP Procedures*

BRK™ Transseptal Needles are used to create a puncture in the interatrial septum to allow the passing of an introducer and/or catheter through the septum from the right side of the heart to access the left side. They are available in a variety of sizes and curves and are designed to be used with our line of fixed and steerable guiding introducers for transseptal access. Additional features include:

Curve Options

Available in three curves to allow for different anatomies and puncture techniques

Two adult curves (BRK and BRK-1) and two pediatric (BRK and BRK-2)

Variety of Lengths

  • Available in four usable lengths – three adult (71, 89, 98 cm) and one pediatric (56 cm)
  • The 98 cm needle is designed for use with St. Jude Medical Agilis NxT™ steerable introducer

The BRK XS Transseptal Needle features a steeper primary bevel angle and two back bevels that combine to form a distinct point on the tip of the needle. As a result, it requires less puncture force to penetrate the fossa ovalis and can accommodate variances in difficult anatomies.
